After struggling in Detroit, losing 2 of 3 to the Tigers, the Yankees continued their 7-game road trip to Toronto for a three-game tilt with the third place Blue Jays. The Yankees came into the weekend on thin ice, with their backs against the wall in terms of how many more games they can afford to lose before the organization starts looking forward to the 2015 season, and sending Captain Derek Jeter into retirement without one last appearance in the postseason.
A closed-door meeting kick started the offense somewhat, but more cold bats in the Motor City sent the Yankees into a tailspin in Toronto. The team and their fans were hoping for a much-needed sweep prior to returning home to open up a series against the arch rival Boston Red Sox, but instead, avoided a sweep with only one win in the series opener Friday night. Let’s take a closer look at another lost weekend for the Bronx Bombers as summer transitions into the early Fall, and the days are running out for this group of Bronx Bombers.
